Triple H participated in a media call following last night's NXT Takeover pay per view from the Moda Center in Portland, Oregon. The Game revealed that the yellow-and-black brand's show was the highest grossing WWE event in the Portland area since 2008's No Mercy. He also mentions that without any live events from the main roster, NXT was the weekend's big draw.
I thought we had a great night tonight here in Portland for Takeover. This was the highest-grossing WWE event in Portland since 2008, which for me, I believe is really saying something. This has been a great market for us, but to come here to Portland with NXT for Takeover, with no RAW, SmackDown, or pay-per-view event attached to it, with no weekend of events attached to something to sort of draft off in any way, shape or form, which sometimes helps and sometimes is difficult when there's four shows or whatever, back-to-back.
He continued by calling NXT's accomplishment incredible before praising the show, calling it spectacular from start to finish.
But for me, coming in here to Portland and having this event, doing the business that we did, is incredible. It's a testament to the talent, and the brand, and everything that it's doing, and I thought we had a spectacular show from start to finish.
The main event of Takeover Portland saw Adam Cole retain the NXT championship over Tommaso Ciampa thanks to an assist from a now heel Johnny Gargano. Also on the card was Rhea Ripley defeating Bianca Belair to remain NXT women's champion, and the Broserweights dethroning the Undisputed Era to become new NXT tag team champions.
